The airline operates Airbus A319, A320, A321 and A330 services from the airport to Bogota, San Jose, San Salvador, Medellin, Cartagena and Brazil.

Tricia Casalinho, Senior Vice President, Ground Handling at WFS, said: “Growing our ground handling portfolio at airports around the world is a big strategic focus for WFS and our team in JFK are certainly seeing significant success in attracting new airline customers from all over the world.

“We are delighted to have been chosen to represent Avianca and our team are ready to deliver the great customer service the airline wants its passengers on every flight to experience.”
